Wait Upon the Lord

open Bible

Jerome, one of the early Christians, said, “Ignorance of the Bible means ignorance of Christ.” Job once said, “I have esteemed the words of his mouth more than my necessary food.” Jeremiah said, “Thy words were found and I did eat them; and thy word was unto me the joy and rejoicing of mine heart.” To read the Bible one needs a “quiet time.” Christian students often ask, “How do you maintain your spiritual high? What do you do on a daily basis?” I tell them about my “quiet time.” Some days it is in the early-sometimes late-morning, sometimes evening. Without it, my Christian life would be a wilderness. Isaiah said, “They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles, they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint” (Isaiah 40:31). So gain the strength of eagles, as the prophet suggested. Set a time each day when you can spend a few minutes alone with God.

Prayer for the day

Dear Lord, teach us to wait upon You, that
we may know Your strength.

    It’s so refreshing to come into His presence each day – I was saved by the blood of Jesus Christ on June 25,1961 under the Ministry of BGEA/Youth For Christ International. Thank you for being there to point The Way for me!!! And I love your Devotional page; it provides an extra boost daily. What a joy to now work as a volunteer with the Decision America Tour 2016 … just an honor to serve the Lord with my hands and my whole heart. God Bless You all at BGEA/ Franklin Graham Ministries!!!

    So true. The time spent with the Lord: PRICELESS. Please pray for those effected by the major snowstorm in the US today. Amen!

    if I don’t start my day with Christ, through my bible reading and other devotions, my day does not go well. I look forward to that time with my Father.

    Please pray for me and my wife. My wife had a hysterectomy in May. She has been bleeding since August, and they don’t know why. I hurt my back, and it comes and goes from time to time. Please pray that the Lord will touch our bodies and help us with this. In His time and will. Thanks, and God bless!!
